    2. Author/Illustrator: Rod ClementFirst Published: 2002Bright Australian colours with a sweet narrative which appeals to the child as well as the mother in me - if you just stop nagging, everyone will be more receptive!Not a lot to say - it's colourful, straightforward, humorous, and happy. A lovely portrayal of Australian fauna with simple rhyme, highlighting the legendary dancer.AgeRead aloud: 4+Read yourself: 8+(ISBN 9780207197581)

    4. This book has fantastic illustrations and the text is also very good. I thought that it was pretty arrogant of the author to include a full page biography and photo before the title page
